SSS Challenge…Take a Picture

Hi all! I have a card I created for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week Simon Says…Take a Picture!

And I’m not going to lie, I was so excited! You may not know this about me but I have a slight obsession with cameras (okay, it’s a huge obsession) I have a vintage camera collection that is my pride and joy! :] And I’ve been hoarding some camera related patterned paper for quite some time now (they are just so pretty!)  But, this challenge forced me to use some of it and I’m so happy I did!! :]




I used some grey card stock that I received in one of my monthly card kits as the card base and the patterned paper is from Studio Callico’s Darling Dear collection. I created the tiny polaroid with a 1 inch square punch (I don’t have any square dies or any of those adorable polaroid dies) and my paper trimmer. I then stamped the heart from an adorable Lawn Fawn stamp set that was also apart of a card kit in Hero Arts Red Royal Mid-tone Shadow Ink and die cut the “you” from the SSS You die and stamped “make me smile” from the coordinating stamp set.

I gotta say, I’m very happy with how this turned out, but that’s not a surprise seeing as how it is camera related. :] Thanks for stopping by!!

Little Tangles Challenge

Hi all, back again! This time with a Little Tangles Challenge to get krafty!






My original idea for this didn’t work out too well, so I scrapped that and moved on. I dry embossed the front panel with a Sizzix embossing folder and die cut a small circle just big enough for the sentiment I wanted to use ‘Birthday Wishes For You’ which I heat embossed in white. Next, I popped up the main embossed panel on the card front with dimensional foam adhesive and then added the die cut circle with my sentiment (and yes, you guessed it…more dimensional adhesive) I finished it off with some faux white stitching lines all around the circle and some cute blue, yellow, & green enamel dots from Studio Calico (I think I got them from one of my card kits) Lots of fun Layers on this card! Hope you enjoyed!! And I’ll be back in a bit with a 10 Minute Craft Dash card to share! :]
